DESCRIPTION

This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

smbget is a simple utility with wget-like semantics, that can download files from SMB servers. You can specify the files you would like to download on the command-line.

The files should be in the smb-URL standard, e.g. use smb://host/share/file for the UNC path \\\\HOST\\SHARE\\file.

OPTIONS

-a, --guest

Work as user guest

-r, --resume

Automatically resume aborted files

-R, --recursive

Recursively download files

-u, --username=STRING

Username to use

-p, --password=STRING

Password to use

-w, --workgroup=STRING

Workgroup to use (optional)

-n, --nonprompt

Dont ask anything (non-interactive)

-d, --debuglevel=INT

Debuglevel to use

-D, --dots

Show dots as progress indication

-P, --keep-permissions

Set same permissions on local file as are set on remote file.

-o, --outputfile

Write the file that is being downloaded to the specified file. Can not be used together with -R.

-O, --stdout

Write the file that is being downloaded to standard output.

-f, --rcfile

Use specified rcfile. This will be loaded in the order it was specified - e.g. if you specify any options before this one, they might get overridden by the contents of the rcfile.

-q, --quiet

Be quiet

-v, --verbose

Be verbose

-b, --blocksize

Number of bytes to download in a block. Defaults to 64000.

-?, --help

Show help message

--usage

-U, --update

Download only when remote file is newer than local file or local file is missing.

-e|--encrypt

This command line parameter requires the remote server support the UNIX extensions or that the SMB3 protocol has been selected. Requests that the connection be encrypted. Negotiates SMB encryption using either SMB3 or POSIX extensions via GSSAPI. Uses the given credentials for the encryption negotiation (either kerberos or NTLMv1/v2 if given domain/username/password triple. Fails the connection if encryption cannot be negotiated.

SMB URLS

SMB URLs should be specified in the following format:

smb://[[[domain;]user[:password@]]server[/share[/path[/file]]]]

smb:// means all the workgroups

smb://name/ means, if name is a workgroup, all the servers in this workgroup, or if name is a server, all the shares on this server.

EXAMPLES

# Recursively download src directory
smbget -R smb://rhonwyn/jelmer/src
# Download FreeBSD ISO and enable resuming
smbget -r smb://rhonwyn/isos/FreeBSD5.1.iso
# Recursively download all ISOs
smbget -Rr smb://rhonwyn/isos
# Backup my data on rhonwyn
smbget -Rr smb://rhonwyn/

BUGS

Permission denied is returned in some cases where the cause of the error is unknown (such as an illegally formatted smb:// url or trying to get a directory without -R turned on).

VERSION

This man page is correct for version 3 of the Samba suite.

AUTHOR

The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

The smbget manpage was written by Jelmer Vernooij.
